Sailing Destinations

Turquoise waters, cloudless days, sandy bays flecked with coconut palms, reefs that shimmer with tropical fish, swathes of forest that tumble to the shore, limestone cliffs which plunge into the sea – it sounds like paradise, doesn't it? It is and it can be found by exploring Phuket's beautiful waters, one of the best cruising areas in South-East Asia.

Phuket serves as the perfect base from which to explore the Andaman Sea's clam waters and tropical islands. Phang Nga Bay, right on Phuket's doorstep, is dotted with hundreds of islands with limestone cliffs that soar straight out of the water, as well as caves and mangroves that beckon to be explored. Krabi province, just a few hours' sailing to the south, is home to the world-famous Phi Phi islands and Ao Nang and Railay beaches, with their crystal clear waters and laid back beach lifestyle. Phuket's West Coast itself is one of the most popular destinations in Asia and a year-round playground for those seeking sun, sand and relaxation. The West Coast has a large number of bays with good anchorages and excellent on-shore facilities.

North-east of Phuket lie the Similan and Surin Islands, which offer some of the best diving in the world. Further north is the Mergui Archipelago in the waters of Myanmar, home to hundreds of rarely-visited islands that are relatively untouched, while south of Phuket in Malaysia's waters sit the Langkawi group of islands, well known for good anchorages and pleasant sailing.
